Personal injury lawyer Bradley Lakin, founding partner of SL Chapman LLC (with offices in Alton, St. Louis and Phoenix), has once again been named an “Illinois Super Lawyer” by SuperLawyers®, a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Lakin also received this distinction, which is given to only 5% of lawyers in Illinois, in 2010 and 2011.
Lakin was selected by his peers for this honor not only because of his skill as a personal injury lawyer and his strong administrative leadership, but also because he is known as an advocate for his clients nationwide. “This recognition from my peers is very gratifying, because it underscores my commitment to fighting for justice and devotion to our firm’s clients,” said Lakin.
Lakin also was recognized in 2006 as one of “40 Illinois Attorneys Under Forty to Watch” by the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, and he was identified as an Illinois “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers in 2008 and 2009. He’s also been named a Top 100 Lawyer by the National Trial Lawyers. A graduate of the Northern Illinois University College of Law, he concentrates in personal injury, nursing home abuse and neglect, railroad injuries, and class action suits. He is known across the nation for his firm’s handling of personal injury lawsuits, having tried cases in Illinois, Oklahoma, Arkansas, West Virginia, Nebraska, and Missouri. In a 2005 product liability trial, Lakin helped his clients win a $43 million jury verdict, the second largest verdict in Illinois and the 30th nationwide.
